Kristin is tops in her field, knowledgeable, empathic, and effective. I have recommended her to several other federal employees and will continue to do so.
The Alden Group attorneys excel in their knowledge of the law and possess excellent representational skills. As a regionally-based labor union, we appreciate their willingness to get down in the trenches with our rank- and-file leaders and staff to fight for our members' rights. They handle individual union members' issues, administrative hearings affecting large groups of workers and are our trusted legal advisers. Our partnership with them has made us a more effective union .
My Federal employer improperly demoted me. Kristin Alden and Tim Cheng of Alden LG got me restored rank, back pay with interest, and they took care of all the little things around the edges that cropped up. The Agency had to pay the legal bill. There was not one single way for Alden LG to win any more thoroughly--total victory. Can't recommend them enough. Highest ppssible rating--FIVE STARS!
I spent three years of my life with the Alden Law Firm. I am forever grateful to Kristin and her associates for returning my honor and dignity. My case involved wrongful termination, EEO, criminal charges, and security clearance issues--not all at once, but progressive as I fought my accusers. I had separate attorneys for the criminal and security clearance charges but Kristin Alden was my primary attorney and her efforts were extremely useful in these other charges--she remained committed to all the charges against me and provided legal support as necessary. She and her associates confronted my case with the rigor necessary to combat the accusations. She thouroughly and meticulously researched every accusation from every angle and made compelling arguements--very knowledgeable. As the agency, who wrongfully terminated me, dug deeper to support their actions, Kristin responded with unwavering results. She explained to me, in detail, her approach to every aspect of the case so I could easily understand what her intentions were. She also took the time to explain the abundance of motions, cross motions, and legal jargen that went back and fourth between the attorneys and the judge. Kristen was not only my attorney, but became my support when I wanted to give up. She truly believed in my case and became my encouragement to move forward. She remained professional during times of personal frustration and helped me through these tough times. She worked with me, financially, on the associated legal fees--money well spent. It's extremely difficult to capture three years worth of litigation in this review. What I can say is that I am so very glad that someone recommended Kristin to me at the beginning of my legal journey. I whole heartedly recommend Kristin and the Alden Law Firm to anyone who is looking for a professional, knowledgeable, and compassionate attorney.
Counselor Alden came at the recommendation of a friend (also a lawyer) when I found myself in the worst bind of my career while serving the federal government. I had prepared my whole life to get the prestigious position I was placed in and, sadly, found that my supervisor actively discriminated against employees with disabilities like mine. When I had an in-office seizure early on in my tenure and my supervisor single-mindedly adopted the mission of getting rid of me, there was nowhere to turn but the law. Thank God that I was referred to Alden's law firm. Everyone I encountered there was extremely helpful, scrupulously professional, informative and appropriately empathic. I knew at all times that in no way was my case merely an income stream for the firm. Instead, I knew that my interests were thoroughly protected for the duration. I ended up successfully negotiating my preferred settlement with the federal government. Today, I'm in a job I love and I'm better off for having had this experience -in large part, because I had the opportunity to work with Kristin Alden. I didn't think it could happen. I'm extremely grateful. Did I mention that due to extenuating circumstances Alden generously handled my case pro bono? I recommend her very highly.
Dealing with employment issues is never pleasant, but Kristin and the other attorney's at the Alden Law Firm were kind, understanding, and very knowledgeable. I felt very taken care of. They took the time to hear me out, understand my priorities and concerns, and took swift and appropriate action. While no one ever wants to be forced into legal action, Kristin and her team make an otherwise unpleasant experience into something bearable. I highly recommend their services.
Kristin Alden is absolutely amazing. Kristen and her law firm being named to “Washingtonian Magazine’s” 2013 Washington, D.C.’s Top Lawyers list is a testament to her professionalism, empathy and personal commitment to her clients and superior customer service. My husband and I are thankful to know Kristin. She is honest, extremely passionate, extraordinarily knowledgeable, an excellent communicator, and relentless at achieving her and her client’s goals.
Everyone we have referred to Kristin has been thankful over and over again for the introduction to her. We highly recommend Kristin Alden and the Alden Law Group to anyone.
Kristin represented me for a Federal Employment Law matter. She was competent, responsive, compassionate and enormously effective. We need more Attorney like Kristin!
I had the pleasure of speaking with Kristin who cordially provided me Pro bono and candid legal advice over the phone and left me with clear direction on how to research and potentially resolve my labor matter prior to incurring upfront legal fees. This type of consulation is not provided often and I loudly applaud Kristin for taking time from her busy schedule to offer both her time and her assistance. I am a senior level government manager and I strongly recommend you give Kristin a call to experience her positive approach and legal services. Thank you and I will tell my colleages about your firm.
